Interesting Mexican Spider

WARNING: Stay away JJ.

Lately I've been seeing a lot of these really cool spiders around my apartment. I've seen one before but it was a few years back. A lot of us talk about how there is this new growth of insects and new species since Hurricane Wilma. I personally think we are right and will go with it. Along with the new growth, there is just a lot more of them. Which can be annoying if you aren't specifically looking to study all the different species of insects and spiders. It's not so bad for me since I live on the third floor, but if i scorpion can make it in.....who knows what else can!

Anyhow, thanks to Beckla's Sergio, he finally captured a pic of this interesting spider. I tried but it was outside a window and the location of it against the daylight made it to difficult to get a decent pic. They've got this really cool crab-like shell thats spotted and comes in colors such as red, orange, white and yellow. Not sure what type of spider it is. I looked on a lot of spider websites and got really disgusted but found nothing that looked like it. Of all the spiders out there, I'd have to say, that this one looks kind of pretty and cool actually and I'm not so blecked out or scared by it. So if you do happen to read this JJ and look at the pics, do not fear, it's really not that scary.

Isn't that cool? Their shell is pretty heavy so they really struggle to stay upright and fight the wind. It's amazing and how well they can build their web considering they are toppling all over the place. Anyhow, if you know what it is, please let me know. And if it's poisonous or something, that would also be a good thing to know. Oh and also if they jump, that would be especially good to know if they are poisonous. So that way I will stop staring at them with curiosity and wonder.

I Want A Letter Like That

JJ was blogging about having to go to jury duty and how much it sucked. She was thinking of excuses to get out of it.

That Janie commented on her blog and said the following:

I could have got you out of jury duty, we write letters for our psych
patients all the time!

"Joyce is not mentally competent to serve on a jury" ... see? easy!

I was thinking. Thinking really hard.

Janie, could you please write me a letter like that except drop the last part that says "to serve on a jury"?

Because then I could go around licking windows and screaming obscenities (not an easy word to spell btw) and I could pull out the letter and go "SEE! IT'S TOTALLY OK DUMB DUMB! SEE! I NO COMPETENT" and then give them the bird and skip away.

Thanks for a GREAT Birthday!!!

To all of those who sent me text messages, emails, msn messenger notes, phoned, showed up at my fiesta at My Place (Hotel Zone not my apartment....sorry Mike....I knew it would screw someone up), THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

I really did have an excellent birthday and I'm even still getting some birthday messages today.

I have the bestest friends ever and they really went out of their way to make it great. So THANKS.

There really are lots of people that made it the bestest and I can't name everyone but here are some special thanks:

~Leta - Thank you miss Leta for helping me bake the cake and gluing my nails on and helping decorate the cake and running errands with me on Saturday and buying me chex mix and raspberry diet tea and yummy lunch and coming to my party and taking care of my drunk ass.

~Joyce - Joycee sent Dave and Marita my special birthday gift and Dave and Marita also deserve special thanks for bringing it down. So thanks guys! I will be the tattoo lady and Miami Ink will be jealous of me.

~Janet & Joe & My Place - She really wanted to make sure everything ran smoothly and gave me special treatment and cut my cake and made me laugh and gave me shit when I needed it. THANKS.

~Becky - Thank you for being my guidance in stupidity. If that's not poetic, smell my farts. Viva Cuba! <-------Drunk message sent at 4:30 a.m. to that Beckla. I am extremely funny when I want to be.

~My five button pants - Thank you for making going to the bathroom an adventure. I am not so sure I will wear you again when I go out partying because frankly, it was hard to deal with and it took a long time and hurt my nails.

~Kim & Arturo - AƱejo is my friend. So thank you. And I'm sorry for abandoning you on stage while singing and I'm sorry for having lots of fun with the guitar when I should have been singing.

~Miss Kristin - My toe nails will look better than they do now when I use that nail polish and the candle wards off all evil energy. Cuz you know, we need it where we work. Seriously she came all the way into the hotel zone and then had to go to work all the way downtown and so it was lots of work and appreciate it.

EVERYONE ELSE - Thanks for just being a part of it cuz it was the bomb and thats the bestest shit ever!

There are photos floating around and once I collect them I will post or post a link or something like that ok!

When Love Calls, You Better Answer ~Bertice Berry

So as you may know....I don't like to read much. But I had mentioned that I read a book that was passed on to me by my friend Rhi. I finished it in two weekends and was quite proud of myself. The book I read is in the title. Quite fitting for Valentines Day I guess. Although, generally, I'm not so into Valentines Day. I'm generally stressed by it since so much is expected of it.

Anyhow, I had marked off various pages in the book because there were quotes that I liked. I need to put them down somewhere as I'm passing the book on. What better place to put them but here? Here we go:

-God don't give somebody else the key and the deed to your house of well-being. It's YOUR house and you can come and go as you please.

-When other people tell you that they got something you need for your life, but only they can tell you how to get it and whether or not you truly have it, you better run in the other direction. Them people don't mean to do nothing but rule over you.

-Folks always confusing ignorance with being stupid. Ignorance is when you don't know; stupidity is when you don't want to.

-Men who do dirt with women don't like to be exposed to clean-living men.

-Don't you know the mind can be a trickster. It will cover up what you don't want to see just 'cause you don't want to see it. The minute you turn your head even a little toward the truth, bingo! You are faced with a bunch of should'ves and would'ves.

-The light of truth came on and she could see.

-The enemy's real weapon is in making us blame ourselves for someone else's guilt.

-You can't live for nobody and can't nobody live for you.

-You got to take inventory from time to time. Gback over your life and look at the people who you think done you wrong. Forgive them and then forgive yourself.

-Ain't no harm in going in the wrong door. It's when you move in that sets life a mess.

-When somebody treat you bad and then walk out on you, you feel more inclined yo try to win them back. Even when you know things ain't right, you still think you got something to prove. If you in something that's real bad, find the strength to leave. That way, when it's your choice, you can still be in control.

-Don't ever get comfortable with time; you always have less of it than you think.

Ok so after typing that all out I am thinking that maybe it might be construed as a bit depressing but frankly I found the words empowering.

There is one little quote that was in the book on the very last page. It was hand written very close to spine and was in a place where it was kind of hard to see.

It read:

-Because sometimes books find you.

Thanks Rhi.

Are You Immature?

What a dumb question. Have you not read my blog? Of course I'm immature! Jeesh. But I took a stupid test about it and this is what I got:

You Are Somewhat Mature

You definitely act like an adult sometimes, but a big part of you is still a kid at heart.
While your immature side is definitely fun, you're going to have to grow up sooner or later.

What about you? You've totally got the brain of a 12 year old don't you? Na na na na boo boo!

I'm Not That Hot

Seriously. I'm not. And frankly I'm beginning to get real pissed off at people who can't seem to see the line in the CEMENT that says, hey, don't freakin cross this.

There really is a line there. I SWEAR to god there is. Especially if it's a professional interaction. Especially if I'm paying you to do a freakin job.

I had to quit kickboxing because the kickboxing teacher did a number of things that simply crossed the line. Here are but a few:

-Called at hours that were unprofessional (11pm, 1am, 2am).

-Sent text messages non-stop and also at crazy hours.

-Often signed his text messages "xoxoxoxo".

-Says things like "liz are you come to class. i worry for you. are you ok? please write me back ok?".

-Followed me and a friend back from the hotel zone on his scooter all the way downtown to "see if I was ok". Then continued to call and message me after.

-Would message me and message me over and over to ask if I was coming to class.

-Would make comments in class about my body and such.

When I told him he was being unprofessional, he claimed that he was not and that he just cares for his students but that he's learning about the world and maybe thats not a good thing. PLEASE. Cry me a fucking river ok? Just admit your pig and perhaps I'll forgive you. But he couldn't. So thats the end of that. Thanks a fucking lot jerk face.

So now I get like two dozen roses sent to me by someone else whom I'm suppose to have a professional relationship with. The guy is not something that I would even glance twice at. In fact, he appeared to me, to be a man who's married and probably has kids to boot.

This is what the card said (I translated for ya):

-You are the divine inspiration and spirit of love and beauty in this

WHAT THE CRAPOLA? (He probably hasn't read my blog cuz he'd certainly learn different)

So here I sit again. Wondering what is the freakin deal. Since all I wanted was to pay money and get my service and THATS IT. I don't want your friendship, or your roses, or any free kickboxing equipment because you want to get with me. And don't sit there and say that it was just a gesture of friendship because I don't meet any women and send them two dozen roses because I'm happy we became friends. Oh and also because they are paying me to do something for them.


If you think I should be flattered. I'm not. I'm offended in more ways than one. I'm disgusted really. Because life shouldn't be like this. I should be able to go about my life without some jerkoff that I would never be interested in, coming onto me like that. Like I said. I'm not THAT HOT!!!!!!!!!

Now if you're hot (and male and single and nice and honest and have a decent job and aren't psycho and aren't bipolar and don't take steroids and have a nice bod and are sexy and romantic and nice nice nice) and I want to get with you, then send me the freakin roses.

Otherwise, GET LOST.

Blog Manners

"I feel that we (bloggers, or those who share our random thoughts to the internet universe) have the right to vent when we feel like it. We have the right to not be clear, to not make sense, and to mention things completely out of context or off the wall. Though we should probably, for the sake of the faithful, try to make SOME sense and/or have SOME content on a fairly consistent basis... that's just a manners thing."

~ JJ - Trauma: The Drama

The only thing I have to say to that is:


Screw manners.

How Do You Live Your Life?

How You Life Your Life

You are honest and direct. You tell it like it is.
You say whatever is on your mind. Other people's reactions don't phase you.
You prefer a variety of friends and tend to change friends quickly.
You have one big dream in your life, and you never lose sight of it.
I'm not sure about the changing my friends quickly....I think I pretty much stick to the same ones unless they piss me off.....
Give it a try and let me know how it turns out.

Don't Forget! My B-Day is on the 17th!

Well now that I've given you enough notice to purchase me nice gifts (plural) for my birthday, I can get on with the haps.

I often think of good things to write on my blog when I don't have my computer in front of me. So when it comes time where I'm like, damn....I think I should write something, I'm usually at a loss for words.

So this blog is going to be all over the place just for you.

Firstly. I love the new Coca Zero. It is much better than Coca Light even though Coca Light is wayyyyyyy better than Diet Coke. I never use to drink any sort of pop (Yes POP. I'm from Canada so don't say to me, "Pop??? You mean SODA!") back home. Well I did when I was a kid but as I got older I just preferred water. I knew that pop was full of sugar and endless calories, diet pop tasted like crap and if you ask for a glass of water back home at a restaurant, IT'S FREE. Plus you can totally drink water from the tap and not get any sort of scary parasites or anything. Sure it tastes like pool water, but that just makes your insides cleaner and a little lighter looking (Michael Jackson drinks lots of pool water). So yeah. Try Coca Zero if you want to have coke but without the calories. It's a lot better than Coca Light and totally beats the shit out of Diet Coke. If you work for Coca Cola, please send me free Coca Zero because you didn't put me up to this. I did it all on my own.

I took Diesel to the beach on Sunday. He loves the beach. He will swim if I put him in the water but he doesn't exactly go running for it. I only put him in there cuz it cools him down and stops him from running around and peeing on other people's backpacks....just like he did. Proud moment I tell you. How's this for his pee obsession. Last night I took him out for a pee, he runs around and does his business and as we are going upstairs, he walks to the center of my neighbours door, lifts up his leg, and pees right on his door. WTF? If you know why he did this, please let me know. And come up with a better answer than "he's marking his territory" because please. The dog knows I have rules. And peeing in the hallway.....on other people's backpacks, other people's doors......NOT COOL.

So last night I went to see a psychic who is also a friend of a friend. She has said some pretty cool shit that was right on the money. Her thing is that she'll tell you something but she has no idea she's told you. It kind of pops in and out of her. Like a skitzo with different personalities. She said I could tape record but I didn't bring my nifty MP3 recorder with me and I was glad I didn't because she said that often times her voice doesn't show up. That gave me the heeby jeebies so I was glad I forgot it. Anyhow, she confirmed some things for me which are good and brought up some things that I thought were odd but still true never-the-less. I am still thinking on the reading and would like to see how it all pans out.

For those of you that read my blog know that I do tarot card readings from time to time for friends. Some people say I have some sort of gift but I'm not sure how to harness it really. I see weird shit and beat up ghosts. I'll tell people things that come true or get a really strong feeling about something and can't let go of it until I pass the info on.

For some it's fun and thats awesome if that's all it is. For others it's another dimension that they believe exists and they use it to help guide them just like some people read the bible, talk to friends or write on stupid things called Blogs.

Anyhoooo. I wanted to thank Bridie the psychic for my reading. She said more than one prayer for me at the end. In fact I think she said three. And in case you didn't know it already, I have a really special aura so get with it and buy me my birthday gifts dammit!

Since When Do I Censor?

I am displeased with the censoring of dirty words in my last post.

This is my blog, and if you don't like it, or it's too offensive, how about I give you an insult of the day....

Fuck THAT and Vete a la CHINGADA!

I feel much better now.

Oh and also me vale verga. That's one of my favorites. Say that to a man and he will protest that a woman shouldn't say things like that. It's at that point that I punch them in the face and say, wake up, I don't do your laundry, make you dinner or let you pay my way, so I can say whatever I well want dammit.

My mommy would be proud.....

An Insult a Day

JJ gave me an Insult A Day calendar. You know, the ones that have an insult a day and you tear it off the next day? I thought it would be really really good actually. But I think I was looking more along the lines of actual insults like:

  • You're a *&()head!
  • You're mama's so ugly, she scared herself when she looked in the mirror!
  • F*&( you asshole!
  • Eres una puta de la calle!
  • Oh my, haven't you gained a few pounds!!!

But actually, they don't. They say a lot of stuff that I just don't get is an insult. Here is an example:

  • A great entertainer and a great Catholic. As a Catholic, he is often compared to St. Paul, one of the dullest towns in America.

This is todays:

  • I see you've set aside this special time to humiliate yourself in public.

That one is actually not bad. Sometimes I like to humiliate myself in public for shits and giggles tho. So it can go either way I guess. Just like when I say, "F*&( you asshole!" know I mean it in the most intelligently loving way possible.

(Two blogs in one day. I'm so good. Beat that JJ!)


I couldn't think of a title so that's what you get. A "hi".

Diesel has recovered remarkably well. He took out two of the stitches himself and I just decided to remove the last one. He let me do it so there was no fuss about it all.

I was suppose to go back to the vet last Friday to let her take them out and have a look at him but since I (and Diesel) did it already it wasn't necessary. But really that wasn't the drama. The drama was that Plaza Las Americas had a fire (AGAIN). Unfortunately, two firefighters passed (RIP BOMBEROS) and as a result half of the mall remains closed. My vet happened to be the pet store that was below SEARS (poor Sears which just reopened after the damage from the hurricane - WILMA THE BIATCH) and I phoned her to make sure all was ok. She sounded really down on the phone. She was able to go in and get whatever pets were there, but had to leave the fish and whatever product behind. She said there was flooding and with the roof caving in, it was not a good situation. I felt bad because this mall has gone through two fires and Wilma. Almost seems as tho they should just rip it down and re-build.

I had a fun weekend mixed in with some stupid crap and frankly I'm really tired right I'm going to leave this blog the way it is. I just thought I should inform you all that diesel is good. He's got his one ball and all is well with him.

Hasta la Pasta!
